Subject: My First Show
Subject: These were a great pair of shows
What I remember most was the killer US Blues which was a year to the day from the terrable RFK experience the year before.

Subject: Not as memorable as night before, but there's a lot of good music here.
1st Set: Yay! This was always mustached bunnies tossin' dough, song..."Finiculi" (excellent 5-22-77, DP #3 into Music...that's hot disco) Let's get friendly together with the shared beloved enigma known as "Mississippi." The drummers have found the perfect beat, and are adorning the outro magnificently. Yes!! we're steamrolling and 'on our way...' Can we say 'standout?' "Walkin'" on, the groove is thick. Once "Candyman" starts climax, it's an over-the-top pleasure. Again, great drumming tonight. "Esau" is fine, despite some early lyric issues. "Push," eh, you know the story..."Uncle" is bad-ass and mean..."Mexicali"'s got some bite while maintaining the tight energetic feel..."Bird" is not as gentle as some ones, but it's certainly contoured with strength and grace. Healy's adding some bird-chirping. "Promised" is a keen way to end this enjoyably professional, inexplicably 'on' set.
2nd Set: Nice change of selection pace opening up with a tightly jammed out "West." Jerry's leading the charge. Great, unexpected lay-down on the "Cumberland" call. It's loose that contrasts the structure of the previous and next tune, "LLR." Good spot as well as a 'power ballad' tone increased the virility of "Bird." Bobby really has to be heard from 7:30-on...as it's so god awfully funny even if you weren't on blueberry. Yea, it weaves its away around a perfectly paced "Eyes" intro. The experience merits pride even if it's only a typically short '87. "Drums/Space" pass, as they will... At 8:35 Bobby does a definite "Victim" tease. It comes and goes for the next 45 seconds. "The Wheel" starts cooking about 3:00... "Gimme" causes a commotion . "Morning" stirs me quietly, but I'm feeling a bland storm hovering through my cloudy head. "Lovelight" tickles me pretty, it gets frenetically Intense at 4:35.
Even Jerry' voice has some bullish snappers tonight during a slide-infused delightful "US Blues."
A very good show, 3 1/2 stars rounded up to four because I like how the boys are sounding.
Subject: Great Show
Subject: Great but where's 7/8/87???
